The Impact Food Photography Kit offers a compact, basic setup with a fluorescent lamp head and a versatile stand that will allow you to shoot your own cuisine or a wide variety of tabletop items. You can enhance the head's quality of light with an optional diffusion source such as Impact's 33" or 43" White Translucent Umbrella or one of Impact's line of collapsible reflectors.
The Impact Convertible Boom Arm/Light Stand is a triple-duty support that can serve as a 13' light stand or as an overhead boom capable of supporting a small light head such as the included fluorescent fixture at an extension of almost 3.0' from the center of the stand. Alternately, you can bounce the light off of a reflector or pump it through diffusers up to 60" by supporting them with the stand's spring clips.
The Single Socket Fluorescent Fixture comes with a 26W compact fluorescent lamp with a daylight balanced color temperature of 5,000K. The fixture's bracket tilts and locks into position and features a standard 5/8" receiver that mounts on any 5/8" stud or accessory.
